FERNANDEZ TORRES, Naile; MORALES VALDES, Rodolfo E  y  FERRER, Ares. Intrapulmonary pulmonary sequestration. Medicentro Electrónica [online]. 2021, vol.25, n.2, pp.355-362.  Epub 01-Abr-2021. ISSN 1029-3043.

Pulmonary sequestration is one of the most common lung malformations in young adults. This can be originated from an accessory lung bud that migrates along the development of the esophagus, or it can occur by repetitive pulmonary infections; its clinical manifestations are highly variable and its detection is a radiological finding. We present a young patient with multiple admissions for pneumonia at “Dr. Celestino Hernández Robau” University Hospital. Chest X-ray showed a non-homogeneous image in the right lung base, which did not improve despite several broad-spectrum antimicrobial treatments. A thick vessel that started from the abdominal aorta to the right pulmonary base was observed through a computerized axial tomography. Image reconstruction was performed and with the diagnosis of pulmonary sequestration, surgery was performed. The patient had a satisfactory evolution.
